Resetting a dishwasher may be necessary if the start button was hit too many times in a row or if a cycle doesn’t begin when it’s supposed to. Some other common issues that may require dishwasher troubleshooting are an activated control lock, activated sleep mode, a selected delayed wash cycle, the door not being completely closed, a powered off water supply and the power needing to be cycled for resetting.
